Kronos Quartet with Mahsa Vahdat
Music for Change: The Banned Countries

For more than 40 years, San Francisco’s  Kronos Quartet  has embodied a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience.  As a direct protest to the 2017 Executive Orders limiting travel to the United States, Music for Change highlights the rich diversity of artistic voices from Muslim majority countries. Joined by Persian singer Mahsa Vahdat, the Grammy® Award-winning ensemble performs a new program featuring music from the original seven "banned countries" – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

The Cartograph Journey
A Cartograph is a visual marking of ideas over time and place. The map featured on their label reflects the journey that led Serena and Alan to the adventure of winemaking. Cartograph is known for Pinot Noirs sourced from outstanding local fruit, made with attentive care and a light hand in the winery. Join the journey and experience some nuanced and subtle wines with this dynamic couple before Kronos Quartet.
